    Weekly.  I’m lucky if Darling Husband pulls the covers up when he leaves for work

    I love the look of a made bed, but ours usually doesn’t get made because I get up and leave for work before my fiance gets out of the bed. And by the time I get home, we are going to be going to bed in 3-4 hours so what is the point? I really, really wish he would make the bed though!

    Every single day. I like things to be neat.

    I loosely make it. It certainly isn’t all neat and tidy, but it is made. In my small apartment bedroom, the whole place would look a mess if I didn’t have the bed made. It makes a big difference in the overall appearance.

    I love a made bed! It feels so fresh! That being said, I only make it when I tidy up (which should be every day, but is more like every other day.)

    I voted every single day, but that’s kinda cheating because really my Darling Husband does it, lol.  🙂

    @Sea_Ashley:  What she said!!

    We wash the sheets every weekend and that’s when the bed gets made! Darling Husband works from home so I am up and out of the house before he even gets out of bed. He neverrrr makes the bed and it just doesn’t make sense to do it when I get home at 7 pm and am going to sleep in a few hours.

    Like twice a week. And Fiance is always so surprised and pleased to see it (he’s very very neat in general but never does the bed for some reason). He always seems so impressed for what’s actually so little work on my part I always feel I should do it more often.

    It is possible he thinks doing the bed is way more complicated than it is. I’m not sure. I’ll take the happy looks and compliments and not question it too much, anyway 😉

    I can’t even leave the house if there is a dirty dish in the sink, so leaving the house with an unmade bed would be IMPOSSIBLE. I’m too OCD about things being tidy when I leave the house.

    Even when we stay in hotels I insist on making the bed before we leave the room! hahaha! I can’t be the only one……….. right??

    I never make my bed.  I like it already ruffled and cozy so I can slide right in and sleep.

    When I put new sheets on, or if we have comany coming over. Our bedroom is on the way to the bathroom, so people pass it & can see in.. and I don’t want them thinking we live like slobs, even if we do sometimes 😉 I’d feel weird shutting the door, so I always make sure the bed is made if I know people will be over.
